London Diocesan Fund is seeking to appoint to the newly created post of Senior Investment and Asset Manager.

The Church of England in London is vibrant and at the heart of communities throughout the capital. The Diocese of London comprises parishes, chaplaincies, and missional communities in London north of the River Thames. At the London Diocesan Fund (LDF), we seek to do all that we can to support mission and growth in the Diocese of London, using our resources to help our parishes and worshipping communities serve over 4 million people.

The primary purpose of the role is to ensure that value and income is maximised throughout the housing and investment portfolios by way of proactive asset management, investment, disposal and development. The Senior Investment and Asset Manager will also be key to developing portfolio and asset strategies including delivery of a Net Zero Carbon objective.

The LDF’s diverse portfolio is divided into two key areas: Operational Housing and Investment. Each is supported by a dedicated team of in-house property professionals and external consultants. The Senior Investment and Asset Manager will work across both portfolios. 

1)    LDF’s investment portfolio is valued at c.£120m and comprises of about 30 main assets including industrial, retail, residential, alternative, office and land holdings located throughout London and the South East. The current approved strategy seeks to increase income by a further re-shaping of the portfolio and asset management of existing properties as well as continued investment. The Senior Asset Manager will oversee rent reviews, lease renewals, planning and development strategies, disposals and acquisitions across the commercial portfolio. 

2)    LDF’s operational housing portfolio is valued at c.£850m and is made up of c. 600 units; principally homes occupied by members of the clergy and some 100 let properties. The appointed candidate will be responsible for identifying opportunities for capital release or income generation/cost reduction across the operational housing portfolio through transactional, planning, development and leasing initiatives.

A proven track record in development and asset management is essential owing to the diverse nature and responsibilities of the post. Experience in both the commercial and residential sectors is preferred. Strong stakeholder management skills are vital owing to engagement with clergy, local communities, development partners, internal staff, and external consultants.

The Senior Investment and Asset Manager offers the opportunity to take responsibility for a substantial parsonage development programme and investment portfolio, within an organisation which has a direct impact on the lives of its local community.
